Lecory Wave Expert and GigaProbes(tm) a complete TDR/TDT probing system
Outstanding TDR/TDT Capabilities when hand probing is required using the Gigaprobes™ The Wave Expert Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) is an essential tool for signal integrity measurements of today's high-speed designs. Impedance discontinuities in PCB's connectors, etc. can reduce the bandwidth supported by the channel. These critical measurements can be easily made, either as voltage reflections or as impedance measurements, using the TDR feature on the WaveExpert Series. The available TDR module (ST-20) includes a step generator that produces a fast step (typical rise time of 20 ps) to quantify sub-millimeter discontinuities in PCB's, backplanes, interconnects, etc.

TRUE differential drive to DUT
Automated Step and Sampler Deskew
REALTIME Accurate S-parameter measurements to 20 GHz
Data Output in Voltage, Impedance, or S-parameter (SnP) format
Use the Gigaprobes(tm) SLOT calibrator
Use the Gigaprobes? SLOT calibrator with the Wave Expert calibration capabilities to remove systematic measurement errors from cabling, connectors, and probes so you see only the properties of the test device. This calibration process is similar to calibrations of network analyzers...
